Basic Black is Back

By William

from Asheville, NC

I purchased a 2014 Gibson SG Special Bass last February which came equipped with roundwound strings. As a bass player for over 40 years, I realized that what I really wanted was some good flat-wounds. But, I held off for a while to get used to the new bass. My wife bought me a set of these new Rotosound Black Nylon Flatwounds for Christmas and after a week of practice, I love the look, feel and sound of these black beauties. I couldn't be happier as I thump away for hours without getting sore fingers, too.

These Were made for the Hofner viola

By Scott Reaman

from Tamaqua Pa

These strings are wonderful on my Hofner icon Bass I have seen reviews that the E string would not fit in my nut but Mine had no problems i just put them on so I am not sure about how they will stay in tune having also seen reviews that these strings will not stay in tune, but I will see over the long haul thanks. Rotosound Initial impression is 5 stars

Smooth and buzz free

By Max Lambert

from Hudson, MA

I've been teaching my 13 year old granddaughter to play bass - we re-equipped her bass with these when she was having problems with the buzz and finder wear and tear caused by roundwounds. She loved them. I play their long scale cousins on my bass. They really are smooth, sound a lot like an acoustic bass, and are easy on the fingers - plus the black strings look hot on the basses.

They look great, they play great.

By mstrg

from Wayne NJ

I don't play alot so my fingers are sensitive when I do play. These strings are comfortable and give a great sound. I am not a fan of the buzzing sound that round wound strings make and these give a clean smooth beefy sound that I love to play. I recommend these to anyome who wants a good looking (black strings on a black bass look great) and good plying string.
